According to the Dallas Morning News, conservative darling Tomi Lahren is suing Glenn Beck and his media company for wrongful termination, stemming from comments about abortion Lahren made during an appearance on The View.
The lawsuit claims that Lahren’s show was wrongfully terminated by The Blaze after she made comments voicing her support for abortion rights, adding that she was “understandably disappointed, saddened and in shock for being suspended for freely expressing her opinions, which certainly reconcile with what is the law of the land in the United States i.e., a woman’s constitutional right to choose and in no way inconsistent with any of [Lahren’s] obligations under the Employment Contract.”
Lahren’s newly-revealed support for abortion rights caused a huge backlash from her viewership, as well as conservative pundits in the media.
“I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies,” she said on The View back in March.
Then, according to the lawsuit, Lahren’s show was suspended and she was instructed to make her social media presence “go dark.” The suit also claims that The Blaze was previously aware of her abortion position but “never took any issue with it.”
From The Hill:
According to the lawsuit, The Blaze expressed interest in continuing to pay Lahren “presumably hoping they could find an exit strategy to sanitize their unlawful conduct.”
The suit asks that Lahren receive a temporary restraining order protecting her right to freely express her views and stop The Blaze from destroying evidence related to the incident.
